Has anyone ever used the product called restore for painting concrete? i want to paint my patio this summer.
Its funny how Deck-it is the best of the bunch, yet has zero marketing dollars behind it. Its all about the chemistry, not pretty pictures and unsubstantiated claims. @ Charles, its all about the materials ability to flex between hot and cold swings and remain bonded. Deck-it has extra Latex in its mix. This is beyond the amount provided by the added paint materials. Without it, the coating and its coated surface will delaminate over time. Regardless, as with any of these materials, you must keep a coat of sealer on the surface or you will see white chalky marks over time from the cement components.
we used the gulf product on our deck & i didn't get a thrill running up my leg ( tnx, chris matthews, for the phrase ),,, encore was/is a much better product imho,,, have to try deck-it next
we just used RESTORE on two cement patio's.... works great... have to use two coats, clients of mine (Realtor) have had it on 4 years, not a chip !! should ladt 12
I'm about to do the entire concrete patio around my pool using this - in a cobblestone pattern! Best of luck to you and I both!!!
I put it in my garage about four months ago. I have noticed a lot of sand covering the floor after traffic. At first I thought it came from out side but then I realized it is coming from the product. Looks good when it is clean. But I could build a sand castle every two weeks.
you can redo the concrete by putting colored thinset on it and you can stamp it to make different patterns..Check with lowes or home depot for added suggestions. :)
I applied Rust-Oleum Restore to my deck mid August 2013. We followed the manufacture's instructions religiously. We alsowatched their video for product application. We used Rust-Oleum deck cleanerfor preparation and their special roller for application. Fast forward to March 2014 and this stuff is peeling andcracking everywhere. The failure mode is either peeling up in large sheets or itcrumbles when you step on it. The major problem is that in sections of the deck where it neitherpeels nor crumbles, its removal is all but impossible without destroying thewood decking. The only thing I can do now is pull up the fir decking andeither replace it (very expensive) or turn the decking over, put it back downand use a conventional stain (labor intensive). Needless to say, "I am not happy". Please do not simply believe what I say. Verify this foryourself. Go to: Home Depot Customer Reviews: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Restore-Deck-Liqui...
